New Blancett® B1500 Series Turbine Flow Meters Provide Accuracy and Reliability, at a Competitive Price with Powerful Display Options
February 2016, MARIETTA, GA~
Badger Meter introduces the new Blancett® B1500 Series Turbine Flow Meter, designed to perform in harsh environments found in the oil and gas, and petrochemical industries. A cost-effective option for highly accurate and reliable flow measurement, B1500 flow meters are an ideal solution for standard clean, filtered liquid flow applications in precision industrial processes, such as batching, blending, filling, or general flow measurement.
B1500 Series turbine flow meters feature exceptional mechanical linearity, which increases useable flow range and helps mitigate output variance caused by viscosity fluctuations due to changes in fluid temperature. Using a helical rotor design with high-performance ceramic ball bearings, B1500 meters are able to achieve exceptional speed-of-response and minimal pressure drop. Ceramic bearings are also lighter, more tolerant to extreme temperatures and produce less friction than stainless steel ball bearings, which are commonly found in other turbine meters.
As an added benefit, B1500 flow meters are easily coupled with B3000 flow monitors to provide an economical, robust flow metering solution, with multiple local read and system integration options. Flow rates and totals are presented simultaneously via a crisp dot-matrix LCD display and/or transmitted to a user interface via Modbus RTU, a 4...20 mA analog output or totalizing pulse output. Basic, advanced and solar-powered configurations provide users with flexibility to meet the needs of unique applications.
B1500 Series meters are available in nominal line sizes from ¼…2 inches with an accuracy rating of ±0.25% of reading, when linearized with a B3000, and repeatability of ±0.02% of reading. Ideal flow ranges vary between ¼...250 gallons per minute depending on line size. The B1500 Series meter is constructed of 316 stainless steel and is available with either ANSI flange or NPT end fittings.
B1500 Series turbine flow meters come calibrated and traceable to NIST standards, are in stock and ready to ship. With quick product availability and advanced electronic integration options, backed by experienced application support personnel, the Badger Meter Blancett B1500 Series is an ideal solution for your critical flow measurement needs.
